Not so fast.

Could it be Olympus management was expecting to have a mirrorless camera that worked fully w the 4/3 lenses.  They tuned to development an said 'make it happen'  Well, deadlines came and went, and finally, development has to admit 'Um, we can't make it happen just yet'  Then the company had to redirect development to come up w a new 4/3 camera using the OM-D sensor and tech.  In the mean time, they lost a year or so in coming out w the new camera.

Is that the way it happened?  Well, it's possible.
